However, she admitted that there were a few moments he found a bit ‘weird’.

‘My boyfriend actually, he was amazing because what a tricky thing to watch,’ Daisy told the How to Fail with Elizabeth Day podcast.

‘He loves the series, thank goodness. That’s something I’m very relieved about.

‘But, there was a moment in episode six where he was like: “This is a bit weird.  Oh this is weird.”

‘And we all have to acknowledge that it was a bit weird, and then it was fine.’

Daisy previously admitted that there were some moments where Tom was ‘gritting his teeth’ during the sex scenes.

The couple met on the set for Pond Life in 2018, but it is not known how long they have been together romantically.

Daisy Edgar-Jones wasn’t the only person worried about her friends and family seeing the sex scenes in Normal People.

Paul Mescal previously admitted that his granny and great aunty went out of their way to try to avoid the raunchier moments.

Speaking to Graham Norton, the Maynooth native said: ‘My granny warned my great aunt that there were a lot of sexy bits and that when she felt those were about to happen she should go off and do something else.

‘In episode two when we started kissing she took the dog out. But she underestimated the time it would take and as she came back in we were right in the throes of it all.’
